DIRECT FROM CUBA TO AUCKLAND THIS QUEENS BIRTHDAY WEEKEND
Direct from Cuba, Ballet Revolución – the show that has taken Europe by storm – returns to NZ this Queens Birthday weekend for two nights of breath-taking performances at The Civic.
Fresh from sold-out shows from Singapore to Berlin, Vienna and London and right across Australia, leading Australian choreographer Aaron Cash, along with Cuban choreographer Roclan Gonzalez Chavez have blended breath-taking contemporary moves with salsa and Cuban dance to produce a unique fusion, the result an explosion of unbridled passion and raw energy, complete with a distinctly Cuban flavour guaranteed to deliver audiences a magical night out.
“An irresistible Cuban cocktail of ferocious sensuality,” raved The Australian after their previous show’s world premiere in Sydney. “It is dazzlingly fast-paced, humorous and sizzlingly hot- blooded,” gushed the Daily Express after the sold-out performances in London, while the Tagesspiegel wrote after the German premiere in Berlin: “Once the Cuban dancers get going with their athletic bodies and exuberant temperament, it gets really hot.”
Audiences all over the world simply cannot get enough of the Cuban dancers’ exuberant energy and contagious joy. Full of breath-taking twists, daring jumps and sensual moves spanning dance styles from ballet to street dance set to a soundtrack of the worlds biggest hit songs from the likes of Adele, Prince and Coldplay, Ballet Revolución is a type of show rarely seen on the NZ stage.
Dance training is strongly encouraged in Cuba, as dance means more than art, in fact on the Caribbean island, it simply means “life”. The Ballet Revolución dancers were trained at one of the world’s most prestigious dance school, the Escuela Nacional de Arte, with its renowned faculty of modern dance, and at the famous Escuela Nacional de Ballet for classical dance.
Boundless passion, attractive sensuality, stunning athleticism and exuberant joy of life, Ballet Revolución combines it all in a fireball of emotions that no one can escape. Presale tickets are on sale at 9am from Ticketmaster with general tickets onsale Wednesday 28thMarch at 9am.
